Joeshwa24: Sir, welcome back. Sir, the hobby hasn't changed much excepting the cost of ammo. Good makers of arms haven't fallen off the wagon; with one aggravating exception. Gun Locks. [put strong opinion here]
Given you are re-starting your firearm hobby. Sir, give thought to these.
Stoeger Cougar 8000 [info availability; Beretta built in Turkey]
Sir; any of these will fill your start up with quality.
In addition; 9mm are almost 1/2 the cost of the .40=less cost to shoot=quicker to re acclimate yourselves to shooting.
If you can fit it in, get your Concealed Carry for you and the Miss'es
Many good folks here with just as good thinking.
good luck and follow up with your direction
